Reflecting on the Start of 2015

It’s tough to express any true reflections on a year that just started, so instead, here is my first reflection shot from 2015.  Looks like it could be a good year.

It’s easy to ignore Coots in SE Texas as they are very abundant and can be somewhat boring but in the right light with a good background, they can stand out with the best of them.  Had to expose for the white beak so no positive exposure compensation on this one.  Taken at Anahuac NWR in Texas.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter, handheld out the car window

1/800 sec @ F7.1, ISO 1600, evaluative metering
